About the event

Dr. Praveen Sekhar, Associate Professor, School of Engineering and Computer Science, WSU-Vancouver

Ubiquitous sensors are becoming an integral part of Internet of Things (IoT) applications, and progress in this domain has witnessed exponential growth. The promise is that everyone and everything will be connected via wireless data collection, and services like healthcare will be brought to everyone, everywhere, anytime, for virtually any need. In particular, the field of gas sensors has seen technological advancements for industrial, environmental, national security and energy security applications. This talk will focus on high temperature and room temperature applications of electrochemical gas sensors. Further, the talk will discuss the emergence of flexible gas sensors. Electrochemical modality is ideal to implement flexible gas sensors as (a) electrodes can be miniaturized and easily fabricated onto the substrate (b) portable and flexible potentiostats can be implemented for transduction, and (c) device arrays can be fabricated lending to high density manufacturing.

Praveen Sekhar is an Associate Professor of School of Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University (WSU) Vancouver. He started as an Assistant Professor in 2011 here at WSU Vancouver. Prior to that, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Sensors and Electrochemical Devices group at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Los Alamos, NM, USA. He is the recipient of the Alexander Von Humboldt Fellowship and is an associate editor of the Journal of Electrochemical Society. Also, he is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. His research interests are in the field of Internet of Things (IoT) encompassing electrochemical sensors and microwave devices.
